Carson's foster mom can't say enough great things about this boy.  He is well mannered, housebroken, and just an even tempered boxer.  Carson is good around people and previously lived with kids.  This boy is a gem waiting to be adopted!


Carson is doing well in his foster home.  He does great with other dogs, loves to go for rides, and walks well on leash.  Carson is now just looking for his forever home.

7/06/16 -

Carson is a 4-5 year old boxer boy.  He was dropped off at a shelter in Rhode Island six weeks ago.  Carson was given up because his owners were gone for 10 hours a day.  Carson was bored and began to act out.  At the shelter, he was deteriorating and local rescues were full.  We sent out trainer, Kim Barnett, to evaluate him today.  She will be taking him for some training and he will then be ready for a committed, forever home.  Thanks to your donations, we are able to give these dogs a chance!

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read our Adoption Procedure, by clicking on the link at the top of this page, then fill out an online application.

Boxers and Applicants are not matched on a first come, first served basis. Not all applications are approved. On average, it takes between a week and 3 months to adopt a Rescue Boxer to an approved applicant, depending on your personal circumstances and flexibility.  

Not every home is the right match for a boxer, and matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and theirs, increases the application review time and adoption time. 

And yes, we realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on, may be adopted before you're approved.   Should your first choices all ready found their forever home, we want you to advise us at your home visit of other dogs you are interested...  Or let us suggest a few that we feel will match your home.  That is what we are good at.   And be happy for the ones that have been placed... and know that there are way too many fantastic dogs waiting in their place.

Our non-profit organization is wholly comprised of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing our wonderful Boxers placed in loving, permanent homes and given another chance for a happy life. Our process may seem slow, but if you are patient, we will try to provide you with a devoted, loving companion - a Boxer.

We hope you feel that the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
